She isn’t ‘Jenny From The Block’ but another Jennifer is on top of the charts… details in your Daily Scoop.

Jennifer Lawrence has been named the highest paid actress for the second year in a row.  Forbes has released its annual list with Lawrence coming in at number one earning $ 46 million, down from $ 52 million last year.  Melissa McCarthy claims the number two spot with $ 33 million, which is $ 10 million more than she made the previous year.  Scarlett Johansson falls one spot to third with 25 million thanks to her huge payday for ‘Ghost In A Shell.’  Jennifer Aniston sits in fourth place with $ 21 million from her many endorsement deals including Smartwater and Aveeno.  Rounding out the top five is the only Chinese actress to make the list, Fan Bingbing, who brought in $ 17 million.

Ghostbusters actress Leslie Jones’ website was hacked.  The hacker posted Jones’ driver’s licence and passport, as well as sexually explicit photos of the actress.  Jones was forced to leave Twitter earlier this summer after receiving numerous racist messages.
